Intense zoom suggests that he
is being watched.

Hand held camera is used to
give a sense of realism.

The use of the voice over
narrative sets the scene and
starts the story.

The voice over ends the trailer
with a question which gets the
audience thinking about the
film.
Over the should shot and
shot reverse shot are
used to signify their
relationship.

It also contrast the two
characters: The first one
having long, messy hair
and casual clothing
whereas the other has
well groomed hair and
wearing a suit.
Close ups are used to
introduce the major
characters within the film
to the audience.

This is very conventional
within any genre of film
trailers as it familiarises
the audience with the
characters.
Slow motion and extreme
close up of the pill is used to
lengthen the scene to show
the significance of it within
the film.

Close up is used on the
characters hands and the pill
as it draws the audience’s
focus onto a significant theme
throughout the film.
Low angle of the main
character holding the pill
suggests that once he takes it
he will be superior.

  • 7. The fast pace editing of the graphics used present how the pill effects the brain and the way you think, the bright colours connote a new world opened to you.
  • 8. Over the shoulder shot and shot reverse shot shows how comfortable the man in the suit is sitting compared to the one who is sitting awkwardly, this scene can be used to contrast him after taking the pill
  • 9. Fast pace editing and cross cutting used to show the excitement the audience should anticipate, it also signifies how fast his brain is working once he has taken the pill.
  • 10. Special effects created during editing to recreate how he is seeing the world, slightly distorted and blurred with a small colour change. It also starts to question the audience whether or not the pill was safe to use.
  • 11. Group shot to show the popularity he’s gaining, the composition of the shot places him in the middle which suggests that he is the one getting supported. Their happy facial expressions also suggests that he is enjoying the new world that the pill opened up for him.
  • 12. Special effects of the letters to represent the way his brain is working. Zoom is used to signify the speed that he’s working at and also how fast pace his life has gotten ever since he started taking the pill
  • 13. Fast pace non-diegetic music is used to correspond with the scene sped up to emphasise his fast pace life Fade to black after each cross cutting scene lengthens the time which builds up suspense as the audience needs to wait to see what might happen next.
  • 14. On screen text builds up suspense as it lengthens the time the viewers need to wait to see what will happen next. The scene is filmed with the balcony barriers over the top which connotes entrapment
  • 15. The use of dissolve transitions reflect the voice over as he is loosing memory and skipping days, the dissolves signify everything merging together. Also a mirror effect was used so there was a reflection of the scene, this also reflects the way he is thinking with the distortion and blur. The non-diegetic background music is recent which would signify to the audience that the film is set in the present which may interest them more.
  • 16. The on screen text is listing the famous actors/actresses within the film, they are using popularity as well as the plot to advertise the film. Fast pace editing working with cross cutting to build up to the climax of the trailer leaving the audience wanting more as it does not show how they got into that situation or how it will end. The dramatic non-diegetic music working correspondingly with the footage which faded to black after, this builds up suspense and excitement.
  • 17. Close up of weapons used within the film which connotes danger as they were only shown for a short period of time it leaves the audience wanting to know why they are used and what will happen next. On screen text of the title of the film, as it is one of the last things shown it will be the most memorable to the audience.
